Seychelles Yacht Charter Guide

The Seychelles chain is an archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean off East Africa and is among the most isolated in the world.

What better way to explore these remote pockets of paradise than by a luxury yacht charter. You will be impressed with the stunning tropical landscapes that showcase a contrast of picturesque coconut trees and robust granite rocks that have been polished by the continuous lapping waves.

Often referred to as the “Jewel of the Indian Ocean”, Seychelles showcases a rare beauty that cannot be found in any other destination. The scenic coastline is awe-inspiring and is best seen from the decks of your charter yacht. With so many islands to choose from, Seychelles will forever leave a mark on your heart and have you yearning for more time spent ashore. These islands are diverse and showcase a rich melting pot of French, British, Indian, Middle Eastern and African cultures with a prominent French influence.

These exotic cruising grounds are ideal for an out-of-the-ordinary charter holiday. The largest island in the archipelago, Mahé, hosts the mountain rainforests of Morne Seychellois National Park and marvelous beaches including Beau Vallon and Anse Takamaka. If you’re interested in tapping into your adventurous side, we recommend you visit Seychelles’ two UNESCO World Heritage Sites; the Vallée de Mai on the island of Praslin is home to the rare Coco de Mer nut growing on ancient palms and many rare species of birds, and Aldabra, the world’s most remote raised coral atoll and the habitat of the Aldabra giant tortoise.

Your yacht charter to Seychelles will be filled with adventure, excitement and plenty of surprises. You can visit both the inner and outer islands which each boast their own unique charm. Seychelles’ 41 inner islands are home to the oldest mid-oceanic granite islands on earth, while the 74 outer islands showcase low-lying coral atolls and stunning reef islets. For the best diving in Seychelles, head to Desroches Drop. This dramatic site seamlessly merges the turquoise blue lagoon and dark waters of the Indian Ocean with a subtle drop-off to reveal mesmerizing caves and coves to explore. Saint-Anne Marine National Park is home to over 150 varieties of protected fish; as you dive down, you will be in awe at the various sizes and colors of these beautiful sea creatures.

Every touchpoint of this holiday is filled with tropical adventure and untouched landscapes. The resorts, boutiques and fine dining seen on the inner islands add a dash of luxury to an otherwise remote destination. If you’re someone looking to go beyond the ordinary and immerse yourself in a culture like no other, a luxury yacht charter to Seychelles is a no-brainer.
